This is such a quick and tasty dish! I always use wild Pink Argentine Shrimp as it has the best flavor. Also, can substitute scallops or chicken if preferred. I always use “Smart Organic Chicken” by Tecumseh (just purchased by Tyson because it is so good!) it tastes fabulous and the texture is perfect! Only 230 calories so there is still room to add a side vegetable or salad and maybe even put over pasta or rice too!
